GRrrrrr, called the MRI center and they told me to go back to the consultant and ask what the white spot is, and get the consultant to call the mri center to discuss it. I already have a feeling that my consultant is annoyed by me pursuing this further, he already checked it and said it was “normal”, with the inverted commas. I went behind his back to get the upright mri too. You do what you have to though.
I also got a copy of the radiographers report and there is only mention of degen. disc disease especially c4-c5. Every thing else is normal, including alignment, stenosis etc. Last comment is “overall appearances are very stable with no sinister abnormalities”. The retroflexed odontoid is very obvious but no mention, same with scoliosis, that mysterious white dot, obvious lordosis, abnormality with C4. So I just don’t know??? 🙁
It’s so frustrating. I’m at my wits end with all of this. If the upright comes back normal I’ll crack up. Is there definite signs of Chiari??? If there is, would that level of chiari and the retroflexed odontoid etc. cause my symptoms? Sorry to ask again but I am really doubting myself today. I’ve had a horrible few days of pain, dizziness, memory loss, stuttering, loosing words in the middle of conversations on top of all the other problems, then my two legs went numb last night too, took me ages to stand up. Scary!!!
Thanks again Barbara.
